Evening all. Has anybody tried any relatively affordable treadmills that work with Zwift? I’ve been chatting with somebody on a forum today who has the Bluefin Fitness KICK 2.0 (£467 on Amazon UK) and uses it with Zwift. I quote:
“Hi, it links directly to Zwift, when you open Zwift and select run it then finds the treadmill and connects with Bluetooth. The speed of the tredmill is sent to Zwift and most of the running programs on there tell you what speed to set it too. It works really well, in fact we only use it with Zwift now and don’t use the Kinomap app at all!”
Has anybody used this treadmill or experienced Zwift with similarly entry-level machines? Can anybody please shed light on exactly how it works, if so? (Ie, what speed will Zwift ask me to set the treadmill to). I’m intrigued, as I’ve only ever seen the ‘Zwift compatible’ machines listed on Zwift’s own site - and they’re far too expensive/inaccessible in the UK. I’m wondering if this model might be a game-changer. I tried the RunPod during the summer and was far from impressed - was innacurate and finicky, so would rather have Bluetooth integration straight from the Treadmill like I do my smart trainer.
